Brewer should give the Bulls some added depth on the wing

The Bulls announced the signing of free agent wing Ronnie Brewer for the remainder of the season on Monday.

Brewer worked out for the team last Thursday, which was the same day the Bulls waived rookie power forward Erik Murphy.

The eighth-year wing played the 2010-11 and 2011-12 season with the Bulls -- missing only one game -- before signing with the New York Knicks last season. He was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder after falling out of New York's rotation and was signed by the Houston Rockets during the offseason.

With being loaded at the wing, the Rockets released Brewer on Feb. 21st, making him eligible for the playoffs as he was waived before March 1.

Brewer gives the Bulls experience and another perimeter defender to complement Jimmy Butler and Michael Dunleavy.

He will wear his familiar number 11 and his signing brings the Bulls roster to 13.
